We did some work to our house last year. We kept the receipts. Can we use them on our income tax? And also the gas that we had to use to go and get the stuff? We bought new windows, doors, tin for the roof, insulation etc.
The Home Renovation Tax Credit (HRTC) was a limited time tax credit that homeowners could claim on their 2009 tax return. If your renovations happened between January 27, 2009, and before February 1, 2010 and were on your principal residence, then you can file an adjustment on your 2009 tax return to claim up to $10,000 as part of the HRTC credit. The actual renovations would be eligible (new windows, tin, doors etc) but not the gas required to get the materials. You can find the T1 Adjustment Form at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pbg/tf/t1-adj/README.html?=slnk.
If the renovations did not take place during this time period, then unfortunately, they are not eligible to be claimed.
